West Africa

Our regional office is based in Accra, Ghana with additional staff in Dakar, Senegal, and Kinshasa in the DRC. Our West Africa team works with partners throughout West Africa to strengthen the national Ministries of Agriculture and other government institutions and partnerships, as well as by supporting non-state actors in the region.  Africa Lead’s programmatic work has been focused specifically in Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Guinea, Sierra Leone and the DRC. The West Africa regional program also provides technical and other support to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
